You know times are tough for actresses of a certain age (in this case Hunter) when they are reduced to playing eccentric mentors to the pouty blonde flavor of the moment. That would be Murphy as Stacy, who wants to be a broadcast journalist but is slaving away at a lousy daytime talk show hosted by Kippie Kann (a slumming Bates). Maybe things will go better in her romance with sports agent Derek (Livingston). Oops, shouldn't have peeked at his Palm Pilot, which lists his glamorous, maybe-not-so-ex-girlfriends. Since Derek doesn't talk about his past relationships, Stacy sets up "interviews" with three of the gals (Maran, Jones, Nicholson) to check out her possible rivals. Eventually, her snooping and her job converge into one big mess--a fitting description of the movie.

Little Black Book
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 2.0 4.0

The movie Little Black Book was pretty good. It had it comedic moments, but I thought it was kind of sad. It had a lot of betrayals between her boyfriend and her supposed friends. This movie is about a woman who looks through her boyfriend's palm pilot and finds out that he's been talking to three of his ex-girlfriends. So she interviews them to find out information, without letting them know who she really is. In the end, her boyfriend and her break up and a couple friends she thought she had really weren't such good friends to her. This movie had lying and betrayal along with some comedy. Would I watch it again? Probably, but not often.
